I am at much greater ease due to these two messages. They solve several of my befuddlements about capture.

Wow, I cannot believe I forgot to put these into the manual!  Crazy.
They are in not (git version).

Sigh, one of my many standard typos:  They are in NOW.

In fact, I think my comment about the manual was partly a response to being unable to find this item in the manual, when I know I had seen reference to it somewhere. Maybe in my request for items to be included in the manual, the docstrings in org-capture.el would be scanned. I missed this on my cursory search of that file. I will search for it myself, and work on (believe it or not) org-help.org, that I use as a helpmate.

I have org-capture assigned to C-c, so C-u C-u C-c c goes straight to the last stored item. Perfect.

I THINK I understand that GOTO here refers to the prefix C-u ? And C-u C-u circumvents this?

This is it! What I was looking for.

I think, thought it may seem crazy, I would like to still have a way to specify in the template that one would remain with the newly captured item in its environment, after finalizing. Just the same, thinking about that it's an indirect buffer, it makes more sense how it works now...

You can just widen during capture if you wish: C-x n w will show you the entire buffer.
You still need to finalize at some point with C-c C-c though.

Awe, heck, these two methods solve my problem well enough...

This is a great feature...

This is something I'd like to see an example of.

(defun my-capture-k ()
 (org-capture nil "k"))

will directly get you into capture template k.
